Anyone noticed  the change in their profile ? My 12 month total hasn't changed much but I dropped from fourth to second level .

I just noticed it as well. Maybe its a glitch and itll go back to normal tomorrow. Maybe theyve increased the requirements for each level and theyre looking to screw over contributors.

Same here. Have sent an email. Unless I have forgotten, it seems they have changed the royalty page: https://www.123rf.com/contrib_structure.php - there is nothing mentioned about what is required for each tier. That's scary.

Mine showed a drop in level as well, which if true will cause me to drop them.

I'm 100% sure that they cut commisions even without informing the contributors.

I have some subscriptions from yesterday at 0.288 instead of the usual 0.324 . So it's not a bug apparently . They just left us find out for ourselves . Very smooth ,123rf .

I dropped from level 5 to level 3. I have a bit over 5000 points. Yesterday I still had subscription sales for 0.36 dollars (like before).

They merged some levels so some people will get a drop and some won't . Here's the old level structure - https://blog.123rf.com/2-6-royalties-commissions-payment/ . The new one has already been posted here although the credit targets are missing . The way they are handling this is totally unacceptable . I won't be uploading there anytime soon .

I stopped uploading there when they awarded themselves a commission rise at my expense because they weren't marketing my work as well as they had in the past. I don't believe in rewarding failure.

I panicked when I saw that my comission level dropped. But I think with the merged bands I m actually making the same percentage? Anyway, very low trick to pull this without informing us first.

They remove 35% and 45% levels and everyone who was on this two levels are one level down and have lower commission. This is so unfair

So it would seem anyone in the old Tier 4 bracket, which I am guessing would have been a LOT of people, have lost 5% on credit sales, and 4cents on every subscription overnight with no explanation. 123Rf - Care to explain?

Except your maths is wrong, going from 35% to 30% commission isn't a 5% loss, it's roughly 15%.

Public school.... :( haha I see what you're saying, I was more trying to say on the old chart I received 45% of a credit sale, now its 40%.

But more importantly - we need an answer from 123RF on this pronto.

Where's the current chart of what falls into what category?  All I can find is this: https://www.123rf.com/contrib_structure.php

Yeah, they aren't even showing the targets. It definitely looks like another money grab. Just squeeze a little bit out of all the contributors.

Don't think they're telling, but you can check your own rank on the Dashboard page. I was level 6 now level 4.

Same here: dropped from level 5 to 3, but I still sold .36 subs, today.
I'm still at 50% as per this new table.
So, no change for me.

Well, I was a level 3 I guess with 1400 credits, and now it says I'm a level 2, but according to both charts, I'm still making 40% & .28 ?

I guess the 4 to 2 contributors were the big losers. Lucky me.

....and of course, you all now know now what " currently down for maintenance" means.  And you're still contributing to this "agency"?
